Developer of smart indicator technology, Timestrip has added to its recently announced neo platform with two new stocked products. The Freeze Alarm is designed for products that are sensitive to freezing, and provides a visible alert if the ambient temperature drops below 0 degC for 30 minutes; it shows a further alert at 60 minutes. The Room Temp indicator monitors the range 15 to 25 degC, and alerts at one hour.
The two new electronic indicators complement the first Timestrip® neo product, the Fridge Alarm, which reacts at three temperatures and five time intervals. All the products check temperatures around twice a minute, and are expected to be popular in healthcare applications including vaccines and pharmaceuticals, as well as foodstuffs, paint, adhesives and chemicals. Serial numbers on every product provide for traceability in quality control systems.
Timestrip neo is the latest platform for a range of single use temperature and time indicators that provide highly versatile operation at low cost. More accurate than liquid indicators, the electronic indicators have been specially developed to combine ease of use with a very small and light form factor. All Timestrip neo indicators are suitable for pack level monitoring with both time and multiple temperature settings.
“The Timestrip neo platform technology can cover a very wide range of user needs,” said Gabriel McGlynn, Chairman of Timestrip. “We have anticipated three of the most common applications with the Fridge Alarm, and now the Freeze Alarm and Room Temperature indicators, and will hold them in stock for rapid despatch.”
Other configurations of time and temperature are available to order for quantities as low as 20,000 units.
Timestrip® is an agile technology business that designs and manufactures time and temperature indicators. The company works in partnership with global brands, leading OEMs and product designers. Timestrip Enabled™ products drive changes in supply chain standard operating procedures and consumer behaviour, which in turn leads to greater product safety, product authenticity, regulatory compliance and reduced wastage. Products incorporating Timestrip indicators have a built-in value-added proposition.
Timestrip indicators are capable of monitoring time from one hour to two years, and temperatures from -20 degC to 53 degC. In addition to a core product range, a research and development team develops new products for bespoke applications, replacing the need for expensive and unstable electronic components.
The products are low cost, making them suitable for a wide range of monitoring applications in the food, pharmaceutical, healthcare and many other sectors. To date, Timestrip has manufactured and sold over 100 million products to customers worldwide, including 3M, Tesco, Parker Hannifin, Siemens and Febreze.
